ZANIBONI, Guilherme Rodini et al. Aquatic physical training improves functional capacity and physical fitness in grades II and III obese women. Rev. Bras. Ciênc. Esporte [online]. 2019, vol.41, n.3, pp.314-321.  Epub 16-Set-2019. ISSN 0101-3289.  https://doi.org/10.1016/j.rbce.2018.06.007.

The objective was to investigate the effect of an aquatic physical training (APT) on physical fitness and functional capacity of grades II and III obese women. The study included 14 women aged 34.2 ± 8.3 years and body mass index (BMI) of 44.76 ± 10.08 kg/m2 who underwent APT for 12 weeks. BMI and measures of circumferences, aerobic and functional capacity were evaluated by means of tests: six-minute step; sit-to-stand; and sit-and-reach, before and after the APT. There was a significant reduction in body mass, BMI and waist circumference as well as an increase (p < 0.05) in lower limb strength, flexibility and aerobic and functional capacity. The proposed APT improved the physical fitness and the functional capacity of grades II and III obese women.
